Aston Martin Auto Show Coverage

Aston Martin is a British manufacturer of luxury sports cars, based in Gaydon, Warwickshire. It was part of Ford Motor Company from 1994 until 2007 when 90-percent of the company was sold to a consortium of investors. In 2012, a 37.5-percent stake in the company was sold to an Italian private equity fund. To this day, Ford retains a small stake in Aston Martin.

    ETC: The Windsor Castle Concours d'Elegance in pictures, courtesy of Bentley

    Bentley went to the Windsor Castle Concours of Elegance as the main sponsor and showed off six of its best among the gathering of "60 of the finest motor cars in the world," including the 4¼-liter Bentley 'Embiricos' Special built for a Greek shipping magnate and gentleman racer in the 1930s. Even better, for us at least, is that when Bentley ...

    Spy Shots: Aston Martin Rapide S spotted testing
    1341770520

    In May 2011 our spy photographers caught this Aston Martin lapping the Nürburgring. Supposition at the time was that it is a faster, more powerful Rapide S that would offer up to 50 more horsepower under the hood and a tweaked grille and bumper so that you could pick it out of the line-up. The rumor remains the same, and the more powerful V12 engine ...

    Video: Aston Martin unveils AM 310 concept at Villa d'Este

    Design language is a tricky thing. Err too much on one side and nobody will recognize your cars. Fall on the other and all your cars will look the same. Aston Martin, you might say, emerges more on the latter side than the former. Which isn't to say that we don't like how their high-end GTs look, mind you. But if any company is in need of a design ...

    As much as it pains us to say it, the current core range from Aston Martin has grown a little stale. But fret not: a new model is just around the corner. Snapped undergoing testing at the Nürburgring in this latest batch of spy shots is what looks to be a new and nearly complete V12 GT from Gaydon. Code-named AM 310, it could be a successor to ...

    Report: Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster coming to Geneva
    1324050300

    It's amazing what a company like Aston Martin can do with what essentially amounts to two product families. Discounting the Toyota-built Cygnet and the exclusive One-77, the company's entire line-up is based around either the Vantage or the DB9. While the latter has also spawned the Virage, the DBS and the Rapide, Aston has also done a lot with the ...

    Aston Martin makes beautiful cars. There's no argument there as this is an automotive fact. The Milan, Italy-based Zagato design house, however, can take any car and make it mobile art. It's done just that with the Aston Martin V12 Zagato, a limited-edition show stopper that makes our hearts hurt here in Frankfurt. Why the heartache? We don't have the ...

    Design house Zagato has created a seemingly endless array of beautiful machines for a wide variety of automakers. But few of them evoke the kind of storied and celebrated lines as the collaboration between Zagato and Aston Martin. The first such venture started some 50 years ago with the eminently desirable and highly coveted DB4 GT, continuing through ...

    Geneva 2011: 2012 Aston Martin Virage is more of a good thing

    Truth be told, we didn't really see the need for a new Aston Martin to slot between the DB9 and DBS, but after getting the low-down on the new 2012 Virage, we're welcoming it with open arms. Based on the same VH architecture as the other cars in the English brand's lineup, the Virage uses Aston's wonderfully vocal 6.0-liter V12 to crank out 490 ...

But that hasn't stopped the British marque from launching a series of updates and upgrades. The latest came in July with the launch of the N420 edition coupe, a race-car-for-the-street variant inspired by the company's motorsports ...
